Is honey and oatmeal good for diabetics?
I"m trying to regulate my blood sugar and am wanting to know if oatmeal and honey is good for this.
Also what other kinds of foods are helpful in trying to regulate blood sugar?
My triglyceride levels were at 106 and I'm 40 years old so I think I should start doing something to reverse it to a healthier level before I become a diabetic.
What's the best way I can do this?

Oatmeal. cinnimon, equal = GOOD FOR YOU

Use ΒΌ to Β½ teaspoon of cinnamon per day. Add it to your coffee, oatmeal, smoothie, or wherever you find it palatable.
If you already suffer from diabetes, be sure to stay on a regular schedule with your cinnamon usage so that your blood sugar levels don't yo-yo.Use the same amount at the same time every day so that you can get a sense of how cinnamon affects your own personal blood sugar readings.
Use the powdered spice or a cinnamon stick. Cinnamon pills are also available, and can be found easily via an online search. MHCP is water soluble and is not found in cinnamon oil.

Lime and lemon juice delay the digestion of starches as does vinegar. I've found that 2-3 tablespoons of lime or lemon juice reduces my post prandial BG response by 10-20 points. Rick Mendosa's site has a lot of material on acids in the diet. Take a look at http://www.mendosa.com/acidic_foods.htm .

They were given a thumbs down for bad answers.

Any kind of grain based food is not good for you. Particularly the refined ones. If you have oatmeal, make sure it is not the quick kind and more preferably it should be the steel cut oats. That is, if you feel like you need to eat it at all.

Oatmeal may level out blood sugars because of the fiber. However, oatmeal is still a carbohydrate and will raise you sugar levels. It may or may not spike your levels, but it will certainly raise them for a sustained period.

If a diabetic is considered to have a problem metabolizing sugar/carbs, why in the world would that person want to consume carbs in the form of oatmeal. It intuitively doesn't make any sense.

The problem with grains and grain based food is that even though you think that your sugar levels aren't rising to dangerous levels, your triglyceride levels may be increasing. 106 isn't horrible, but you should strive for below 100. And, that will require consuming fewer grains and grain based foods.

Ever wonder how they fatten a goose's liver for foie gras? They force feed it grains. Grains contribute to a fatty liver.

Honey is certainly and easily a no-no.

Because you aren't diabetic yet, there's no need to drive yourself crazy. But, if you are serious about your health, you should limit your carbs to no more than 30 grams per day (6/12/12 for breakfast/lunch/dinner), protein 50-70 grams per day (too much protein is metabolized as sugar through a process known as gluconeogenesis), the rest of your calories should come through good fats (like olive oil, coconut oil, butter, fish oil). You should also eat lots of leafy greens and non-root vegetables.

Good luck. You have the opportunity to prevent a disease that can affect your life forever.

Honey, no. Oatmeal, yes, in moderation. Use cinnamon on the oatmeal. Research has determined that it helps to regulate blood sugar.

Adalaide, like the other person said, oatmeal is okay, but not the honey. Try just a quarter cup of raw small 3 minute oats, with 3/4 T of extra virgin olive oil. Maybe a 1/16th t. pinch of salt. Stay away from the honey.

Oatmeal is good! Honey isn't, since it has sugars in it.

If it takes sweet or sugarly, it's most likely bad for your blood sugar. Avoid hard candies and juicy fruits, like apples.
